Description

Background

Some organizations that deploy Adblock Plus for Chrome using group policies need a way to add additional filter subscriptions.

We already support a preference that can be pre-configured by group policies in order to uppress the first run page. The same mechanism can be used to allow central configuration of additional filter subscriptions.

What to change

  • Support another pre-configurable preference with the name additional_subscriptions and the type array of string. That preference will contain a list of URLs of filter subscriptions, which can be configured by group policy.
  • When Adblock Plus is loaded, subscriptions given by that preference should be automatically added.
  • It should not be possible to remove those subscriptions on the options page, since they would be automatically added again.
  • However, the user should still be able to disable them. When disabled those subscriptions should NOT be automatically enabled again.
